“They made two [bids], but nowhere near what the club would consider,” Brendan Rodgers said in his press conference when asked if Chelsea have made an offer for Wesley Fofana.
Speaking further, Rodgers said: “We’re not looking to sell. Naturally, if there’s interest from other clubs, that is looked at by the club.
“He’s a top young defender and there are not too many around his age,”
This confirms reports that Chelsea have indeed made two bids for Fofana, one of which was £70m last week. But it also confirms Leicester’s unwillingness to sell one of the best young defenders in the league.
The Blues are also looking to sign a striker this summer, although there aren’t that many good options available in the market right now.
